Decorating Tips: For a more festive look, you can frost these buns with a simple frosting made from powdered sugar and lemon juice or milk before adding the strawberry on top.

Ingredients:

  • For the yeast dough:
    • 300g flour (type 405)
    • 30g of sugar
    • 1 pinch of salt
    • 7g dry yeast
    • 150 ml of lukewarm milk
    • 50 g butter, room temperature
    • 1 egg
  • For the quark filling:
    • 150 g cottage cheese (20% fat) or cream cheese
    • 30g of sugar
    • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
    • 1 egg yolk
  • For garnish :
    • 250 g fresh strawberries, washed and cut in half
    • 1 teaspoon of strawberry jam per bun
    • 1 egg yolk mixed with a little milk for the icing
    • Powdered sugar for sprinkling

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the dough:
    • In a large bowl, create a well in the center of the flour. Add the yeast, 1 teaspoon of sugar and 2 tablespoons of milk. Let it sit to activate the yeast.
    • Add the remaining milk, sugar, salt, butter and egg to the well. Knead for about 10 minutes until the dough is soft and elastic.
    • Form into a ball, place in an oiled bowl, cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  2. Prepare the filling:
    • Mix the quark, sugar, vanilla extract and egg yolk until smooth. Put aside.
  3. Shape the buns:
    • On a floured surface, knead the dough briefly, divide it into 16 pieces and form each into a ball.
    • Flatten each ball into a circle, cut slits in the center, and roll into a unique bun shape with a pocket in the middle.
  4. Assemble the buns:
    • Arrange the dough circles on a lined baking sheet. Enlarge the central pocket and fill it with the fromage blanc mixture and a teaspoon of jam.
    • Brush the dough with the egg-milk mixture.
  5. Cook:
    • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Bake the buns for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.
    • Let cool on rack.
  6. Decorate:
    • Sprinkle with powdered sugar and place half a strawberry on each loaf.

Enjoy these soft and fragrant cottage cheese and strawberry buns, a delicious treat that will definitely bring a smile to everyone who tries them!
